NEW YORK – How obsessive are Barbra Streisand’s fans? A coffee table book may provide an answer.

Publisher Taschen announced Wednesday that Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood, 1968-1976 will be published in December.

According to Taschen, the book will include more than 240 images, many of them never published before. The text will feature a conversation between photojournalists Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller, both of whom were commissioned to work with Streisand after she arrived in Hollywood.

But the main Collector’s Edition is limited — 1,000 copies. And the price is worthy of seats at a Streisand concert: $750. Two “Art Editions” are even more limited, 100 copies each, and cost $1,800.

One set of “Art Edition” books features a print signed by Schapiro, the other a print signed by Schiller.
